Es 1964, colegio de San Nicolás en el Bronx. Un vibrante y carismático sacerdote, el padre Flynn está tratando de cambiar las estrictas normas del colegio, que durante años han sido fieramente salvaguardadas por la hermana Aloysius Beauvier, una directora con mano de hierro que cree firmemente en el poder de la disciplina. Vientos de cambio político están barriendo la comunidad, y de hecho el colegio ha aceptado a su primer alumno negro, Donald Millar. Pero cuando la hermana James, una pobre inocente, le comenta a la hermana Aloysius sus sospechas de que el padre Flynn presta demasiada atención a Donald, la superiora comienza una cruzada personal para sacar a la luz la verdad y expulsar a Flynn del colegio. Sin una sola prueba aparte de su convicción moral, la hermana Aloysius comienza una batalla con el padre Flynn, que amenaza con desgarrar la comunidad con consecuencias irrevocables. © 2008 MIRAMAX .ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

A priest discovers the path of virtue can be steep, and temptation can demand a heavy price, in this controversial drama from Mexico. Father Amaro (Gael Garcia Bernal) is a young Catholic priest whose mentor, the Bishop (Ernesto Gomez Cruz), expects great things from him. However, like all priests, Amaro must first be assigned where he is needed most, which leads him to the small rural community of Los Reyes, where Amaro is to assist Father Benito (Sancho Gracia). To his shock, Amaro discovers Benito is hardly following Holy Law -- he's having an affair with Sanjuanera (Angelica Aragon), a woman who runs a local restaurant, and he's been helping a drug dealer launder his profits in exchange for large donations to the church, which Benito feels is justified as the funds are being used to build a hospital and orphanage for the poor. Amaro is disgusted with Benito's actions, but he soon discovers his own weaknesses when he falls in love with Amelia (Ana Claudia Talancon), Sanjuanera's teenage daughter. As Amelia finds herself falling for Amaro, she breaks off her relationship with Ruben (Andres Montiel), a reporter. Ruben responds by publishing a story which reveals the details of Benito's dealings with the drug dealers; Benito in turn tries to lay the blame at the feet of noble Father Natalio (Damian Alcazar), whose work with local peasants has been wrongly interpreted as supporting armed revolutionary factions. As Amaro tries desperately to distance himself from the growing scandal, he receives shocking news from Amelia when he learns she's pregnant with his child. The Crime of Father Amaro's portrayal of corruption within the Catholic Church led to an outcry from Catholic organizations, both in Mexico and the United States, where they attempted to organize a boycott of the film. However, the tactic failed in Mexico, where the controversy helped to boost ticket sales, making it the highest-grossing Mexican film ever in its native country.
